Accent colors - undercar/engine
 
So, I'm doing a large overhaul of a 2017 86 that's pearl white...I'll have a lot of the suspension and chassis disassembled and will be prepping some fabbed parts to paint. Does anyone have photos of colors they have used with pearl white? I'm thinking maybe a darker grey, maybe with metallic, and using maybe gold for the engine and trans, with accents of silvers and matte black. All of them will be matte to help show fluids if leaks occur.

Dark red/wine color would be a nice contrast, maybe add some touches on the mirrors, spoiler, calipers, etc. too

Part of my idea of the entire build is painting the engine bay either 1) all one very unique color that accents well with the pearl white or 2) the entire bay painted "low rider style" with tape fading, scallops and line work. I'm a paint rep for a large distributor so paint is relatively cheap for me to do. I know most people pay no attention to this unless its a "show car" but little details make any car cleaner.


but, one of my color for the bay if it's a single color is the newer Toyota candy-ish red, like on the 20 Camry's. I still think the reds, golds, greys and silvers will go with that ,too.

i'm partial to metallic colors. massive pain to work with, but dark grey/black with some white pearl metal flake would make some parts pop while still going with the original pearl white color.

+1 on metallic colors. They will look good for sure.
